Thank you, friends!

This week for Mothers Day we designed and delivered hundreds of gorgeous floral arrangements, plants, orchids and gifts. It was one of our best holidays yet, courtesy of you!!

Ed and I must brag a bit about our team. Talented, artistic, perfectionistic designers, warm and knowledgeable sales and customer service staff, excellent logistical planners and experienced delivery drivers. All working together for the best possible customer experience.

For now, we are sold out and all going home for some much needed R&R. But we’ll be back on the case Monday.

And to all who ordered and their recipients—a very Happy Mother’s Day!

Watkins Flowers and Interiors of Distinction

More than just a flower shop, we carry gorgeous gifts: vases, fragrance, decor, handmade cards and, of course, flowers, both fresh and permanent. We care for each bloom as well as the environment with our a pollutant-free flower cooler filled with rainforest-certified, sustainably farmed flowers. We’ve even made sure our sinks don’t produce flower-killing bacteria. Our arrangements are masterfully crafted by award-winning designers. We run a full-service operation: weddings, events, corporate functions, home delivery, and much much more. With all this care, it's no wonder we're the highest-rated florist in the Triangle area.

New to Town - Looking for Local Florist

Town Hall is now preparing Welcome Kits for new families that are moving into our community.

These new families are looking for a new EVERYTHING!

Town Hall contacts these new families each week as soon as they move into their new home.

These new families will find new places to eat, work out, wash their car......they need a new Hair Salon, Spa, Auto Repair Shop, Optometrist, Dry Cleaner, Pet Groomer, Day Care Facility, Florist, Nail Salon, Pharmacy......you get the idea. They are actively seeking new local businesses and creating new purchasing patterns. They will become someone's next new local, loyal customer.

Town Hall will direct them to you before your competition even knows they are here.

Since our Welcome Kits are exclusive, and we can only accommodate one business per category, I would ask you to kindly let me know if you are interested in being featured in our local Welcome Kits.

I would like to schedule a time when you are expecting me so that I may drop off a sample of our "Welcome Kit" and explain the program in greater detail.

Please reply to this email with your availability or call me at your earliest convenience.

For a faster response, or if you prefer, feel free to text me on my cell which is listed in my signature.

Thanks.
